Calgary's 'Crack Macs' Is Closing Down And Calgarians' Twitter Reactions Are Hilarious

RIP Crack Macs.

If you've lived in Calgary for longer than a few months, odds are good that you've heard a story or two about the good old Crack Macs. Located downtown on 7th Ave, the Crack Macs has been home to plenty of often suspicious, and sometimes hilarious activity.

Back in 2009, a Calgary couple moved onto 8th Street, right beside the Crack Macs, and have been chronicling some seriously crazy sights and stories on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat ever since. 

This week marks the end of an era though, as the Crack Macs is officially being rebranded to the Circle K. No longer will you be offered strange drugs at 4 p.m. on a Wednesday while trying to get a slurpee, or feel your heart start racing as you walk closer and closer.

Of course, seeing as the Crack Macs is somewhat of a local Calgary celebrity, we've got mixed feelings about this re-branding. Many Calgarians have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts:

It seems that despite the rebranding, the Crack Macs will always be referred to as just that. Although we won't have any new strange Crack Macs stories to laugh at, odds are good that it won't be long until Calgarians discover a new spot to marvel over.
